 The continent-ocean-boundary offshore southern Morocco is traditionally thought to lie between the Moroccan coast and the Canary Islands. OCTek gravity inversion, however, shows a ribbon of thick crust extending NE from the Canaries, one interpretation of which is that the Canaries are located on a rifted continental block or “micro-continent”,​ rather than on oceanic crust. We have tested this hypothesis via: The continent-ocean-boundary offshore southern Morocco is traditionally thought to lie between the Moroccan coast and the Canary Islands.
